Mysterious chalkings have been reported throughout NASA Langley Research Center. The puzzling messages appeared overnight and urge employees to take bizarre actions, such as smile, dance through crosswalks and skip to work. Safety officials tested the chalk and have confirmed that it presents no problem to employees. Langley spokesperson Marny Skora says management encourages employees to take risks, noting that as one chalking indicates, "Every noble work is at first impossible."...

High in the sky; that's the usual destination for an aircraft that called NASA Langley home for two months. A WB-57, operated by Johnson Space Center and normally based at Ellington Field in Houston, was here until late December installing and integrating a new payload. The WB-57 is one of only two kinds of aircraft in which crews can fly over 50,000 feet. The other is the U-2. ''We usually fly about 60,000 feet,'' (18,288 m) said Joe Gerky, WB-57 manager. ''That's a big advantage for testing...

In the opinion of many space historians, Langley's most important contribution to the Apollo program was its development of Lunar Orbit Rendezvous (LOR). Here, John Houbolt explains the critical weight-saving advantage of the LOR concept. The basic premise was to fire an assembly of three spacecraft into Earth orbit on top of a single powerful rocket. Without this successful mission concept, the United States may still have landed humans on the moon, but it probably would not have happened by...

At Belvedere Plantation in Fredericksburg, Va., mixed in with the corn stalks, pumpkins and hay was a healthy dose of space. Belvedere is one of seven farms across the U.S. taking part in a project called Space Farm -- a collaboration between NASA and members of MAiZE Inc., A Utah-based company that helps farmers design and create mazes. The organization creates mazes each year, and this time decided to spotlight NASA. At Belvedere, a vast crop of corn stalks was transformed into an 8-acre...

After Mercury came Gemini, the project that would put to the test the maneuvers that would be required if Apollo was to be successful. Gemini astronauts would have to practice the rendezvous and docking techniques necessary to link two spacecraft. Langley researchers built the Rendezvous Docking Simulator giving astronauts a routine opportunity to pilot dynamically-controlled scale-model vehicles in an environment that closely paralleled that of space.

The Scout program began in 1957 to build an inexpensive sounding rocket to carry small research payloads to high altitudes. Scout would eventually assist the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo programs by testing reentry materials, evaluating methods of protecting spacecraft from micrometeoroids, and examining ways of overcoming radio blackouts as a space capsule reentered the atmosphere. The first Scout launched at Wallops Island July 1, 1960. Credit: NASA
